Kaleidoscope Eyes

Dana Hoey's latest works, which are on view at Friedrich Petzel Gallery, juxtaposes photos of women of a certain age with their younger counterparts in the buff. I liked the collages' kadeioscope patterns but wondered about the meaning of it all. The younger women's photographs appear to be from porn magazines, while the older women resemble models in a Fosamax or some other life-renewing drug ad. The show is a good quick hit and then move on to the next gallery. (Images via Friedrich Petzel Gallery)
